What are the benefits of owning a Doug’s Diner concept, rather than opening my own concept?

We have spent years mastering our processes for everything from overall operations to training. We also will share with new owners, our insight on what has made Doug’s Diner successful throughout the development process. Brand recognition and a support system from the corporate offices will contribute to the value of ownership.
Can I develop a territory anywhere I want?
No, at this time we are looking for owners to develop territory that will recognize the Name as well as appreciate the regional cuisine on our menu. Colorado is the region we are dedicating to experienced owners. If you choose to develop this area, we would discuss our development plans and goals with you. If we both agree with them, we will give you the first right of refusal, meaning if someone calls interested in the planned development, we would discuss it with you first to ensure that any new development would not interfere with your plans.
Do you provide training?
Yes, we will train you in an existing Doug’s Diner restaurant, so that you can get real experience from real situations as you are learning the Doug’s Diner processes. You will receive a manager training manual to review and you will work each position. We will not charge you for the training, however you will be responsible for your own travel and living arrangements during the training period. Doug’s Diner will have someone with training experience visit your restaurant for two weeks to help guide you through your opening.
Can I add to the menu for local tastes and food?
Our trademarked dishes are already a proven local favorite for the chosen region and need to remain on the menu, however, you are free to add dishes that you feel are beneficial to your market. Menu design and specials can be changed as you wish.
